LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — On the final SmackDown before WWE Elimination Champion, WWE Champion The Rock engaged in a war of words with the Superstar who stole his illustrious title on Raw, CM Punk. Meanwhile, Mark Henry countered Randy Orton’s chair assault with all-out rage and former WWE Tag Team Champions “Jeri-Show” squared off in a knockdown, drag-out main event.

One week ago, Alberto Del Rio added a new level of agitation to his rivalry with Big Show, relieving the giant’s bus of some tires before covering Show and his transport with orange paint. On Monday, The World’s Largest Athlete was so angry over the incident that he couldn’t even speak. Instead he took his wrath out on Yoshi Tatsu, Alex Riley and Matt Striker.

Finally looking to put his fury into words on SmackDown, the intimidating Big Show explained that Del Rio had never pinned him and never would. He made it clear that he would turn the titleholder’s “fiesta into a siesta” when he took back the World Title at WWE Elimination Chamber. (MATCH PREVIEW)

But he was soon interrupted by a Superstar who knew him very well, one Chris Jericho — who, in addition to preparing for the Chamber (MATCH PREVIEW), is set to host a new show “Robot Combat League,” debuting Feb. 26 on Syfy. Things quickly grew intense between the two decorated and dangerous competitors — as The Ayatollah of Rock ‘n’ Rolla suggested a possible WrestleMania showdown between them if things went their way at Sunday’s pay-per-view.

However before it came to blows, SmackDown General Manager Booker T would transform their mutual agitation into a one-on-one SmackDown main event between them.
